New workshops offered
& programme finalised.

We are accepting bookings for 'The Crossroads of Circumstance', a one-morning workshop with Martina Evans suitable for all levels including beginners. Poets with several journal-publications to their names may be interested in a four-day workshop with the renowned poet Jo Shapcott which is filling quickly. Although the Don Share poetry masterclass and James Harpur manuscript consulations are full, we are happy to add names to a cancellation waiting list. Visit our workshop page for more details on all these writing opportunities.

ALSO: the festival programme has been finalised! Featured in 2015 are literary journal showcases; Fool For Poetry chapbook launches; readings by Jo Shapcott, Don Share, Dave Lordan, Grace Wells, David Wheatley, Lavinia Greenlaw and many more.
